I’ve been receiving quite a lot of emails and twitter messages from readers these few weeks and I realised that there’s a common misconception among quite a few readers so I thought it’ll be good to clarify things up.
Firstly, I am NOT a tai tai! On some days I wish I could just sit back and have money fall from the sky but usually I actually do enjoy working and being able to buy stuff with my own hard earned cash. I get the same high from shopping and the same heartache to see my bank balance drop as most of you.
I’m turning 28 this October so I’m not some little girl fresh out of school have have been immersed in the working work for quite awhile. While I’m as nice as I can be, don’t take me as naive or gullible just because I look young!
I am happily married and have been so for quite some time ! So those guys looking for anything more than friends please don’t waste your time. If you’re wondering why my husband’s photos are never in my blog, he has chosen privacy. And seeing how people judge me so quickly I think it was a really wise decision. I understand that the hobby of blogging bring public exposure and with that, all the possible negatives that come with it. I fully undertake that responsibility but why should my family and friends have to? So I only show photos of friends and family that don’t mind the exposure. Thus, it’ll be nice if readers don’t email me asking me for my photo gallery passwords. I hate to be rude and but the password is there for a reason so if you haven’t got the password, you aren’t supposed to be there. Most images meant for public viewing is already posted on my blog.
My husband doesn’t pay for my shopping expenses, I do. He needs to save and worry for our future. He can’t possibly do that if I spend all his money away right?
I’m a girlie girl and I do love making new friends especially with other girls. I might seem aloof at first sight but that’s only because I’m slow to warm up to new people especially in awkward situations but once I get to know you better, I’m pretty easy-going. I’m sure all my friends can vouch for me.
I do not blog about my job because my colleagues and bosses read it too! Not that there is anything bad to say about them but isn’t it just professionalism to keep your private affairs away from your job? I don’t even blog about my overseas trips if they were meant for working purposes. Don’t ask personal questions like which company do I work for or what is my salary unless you know me personally.
Besides, this blog was created to share with my friends (especially those overseas) about how I am doing, an outlet to share my travel photos with my family and friends and for my daily outfit post. I got to know some really nice readers and I’m glad I had that opportunity. But I think that most people fail to see that a what you see on a blog is only a facet of the real person. It will be almost impossible to share every single aspect of my life and my thoughts here so the only way you really get to know me is to be my friend. I try to be as true to who I am when I blog, but how can anyone judge anyone else without having access to the full picture?
For all the other readers who understands where I’m coming from and to those have had the opportunity to get to know me a little better through comments, emails, twitter or msges. Thank you for being so supportive!
